An acrylic tank should have holes drilled in the corners for power cords. If your doesn't, and you don't want to drill, then I don't see many options for you.mcontri said:Oh I am sorry everyone, I should have been more specific. I was talking about the electrical cord and the placement. On the actylic permanent top there are two removable lids about 1'x 8" and they approx 8" from either the front or back I don't like having lids propped open. Is there anyway to get the powerhead in with the electrical cord being not so obtrusive?
You don't have to drain. I"ve done this. Just fix a net under where you're drilling to catch the acrylic shavings as it comes through. And go very, very slowly at the end. Normally, you'd flip it and finish the hole from the opposite site to get a clean hole, but not necessary for what you're trying to do. Have you ever drilled acrylic?mcontri said:Ok I dont mind drilling, but I really dont want to drain the tank first LOL. I will think of something, thank you all
